Lighthouse

Project Description

What are you most proud of? the schooner and anchor were my 2nd attempts at applique but, first attempt at machine embroidery What advice would you give someone starting this project? This was originally a cut from material that should have been pillow cases. I thought I could do much better than just cases and actually make the whole quilt. Sometimes when you start with a panel, and let your imagination run (or flip though a good quilting magazine) you can get lots of good ideas and make something beautiful.

What you will need

  • cotton

Q&A with sharmacdonald

Marie Flannery asked:
I love it! Your quilt and backing fabric have the West Quoddy Head Lighthouse in Lubec, Maine ... my husband and I went there on our honeymoon so it has a special place in our hearts. I recently bought some lighthouse fabric and have been wondering what in the world to do with it. Thanks for the ideas!! And bringing back good memories! :-)
